Getting your discounted Uber trips is as simple as opening the Uber app and adding the VOTESA19 promo code. Complete your booking as usual, and the discount will automatically be loaded.
The promo code will get you two free rides – to the polling station and back – and is open to new and existing Uber drivers. The code is only valid between 7:00 and 21:00 to voters in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Ekhuruleni, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Durban.
Free coffee from Wimpy
Wimpy will keep you caffeinated on the day. Just show them your ink, and you’ll get a coffee on the house. Wimpy marketing executive, Jacques Cronje, explained:
“The free cups of coffee that we will be given to voters on Wednesday, 8 May are a token of appreciation to South Africans that are participating in the country’s democracy. Voting isn’t something that ought to be taken lightly, considering the history of our country — hence, we encourage everyone to make their voices heard these #SAElections2019.”

Cronje adds that your motivation to vote should, however, be about more than just getting a free coffee. It should be a “testament to just how seriously South Africans take their democracy and elections.” But a free cup of coffee won’t hurt, either.
